Thank you for the clarification. You and 2 or 3 others have filled me in and i appreciate the info. It just took me a while to roll that damn rock off me that I've been living under. I do now remember a few people splitting from the Initiative not long ago. I actually appreciate Microsoft setting up CD as a support team in lieu of canceling or adding a huge delay to the game.MS hired Crystal Dynamics to do full production while the 50 odd devs at Initiative lead the project.
A different team did Shadow^that plastic lara with pointy tits and ginormous boobs look so fake and ridiculous and only good for costplay
Aint no way that outfit is comfortable for survival in the jungle
The curent crystal dynamics lara are far superior to that
They just need to improve the graphics for the next game
Lol they have been making it for years already most likely.They just started ?? Ffs this gen gonna sucks waiting for big games on unreal engine 5. See you guys in 2025
And no. I don’t count ps4/Xbox one games on ps5/series x a next gen games . Including halo and horizon forbidden banana
UE3 may have sucked because of the bald marines meme. But every UE after that has been good. So internationally accessible.So every fucking big game is not using their in house game engine anymore & are switching to UE5 i don't know how to feel about that
UE5 looks amazing but we are gone to lose so much when every game is gone to be running on UE5 only which sucks
Epic will have a monopoly on Games Engine
I disagree if let say for example Rockstar decide to switch to UE5 for the next GTA & Red Dead it means Epic will have won they will rake in billionsUE3 may have sucked because of the bald marines meme. But every UE after that has been good. So internationally accessible.
If it helps makes games come out faster that's great.
UE4 was very versatile and could accommodate a wide variety of art styles.
In the end we play games. Not engines. If UE5 makes jobs easier then good.
That may or may not be the reason. Let’s not treat speculation as fact.The Initiative has been having issues retaining employees. So Microsoft and Square Enix agreed to have Crystal Dynamics assist them with development. It sounds like they're doing the heavy lifting for now until The Initiative can get more people internally.
It's certainly not speculation that The Initiative has lost a lot of people and is trying to rebuild its staff. I know you don't have a big developer step in to help you develop your game unless you severely lack the ability to do the heavy lifting yourself.That may or may not be the reason. Let’s not treat speculation as fact.
Tomb Raider is too big of a brand. It will never die. They‘ll reboot it, if it doesn’t work, they‘ll just reboot it again until it does.Do we really need another one? Cant people come up with something new? These didnt even sell that well according to Square Enix, so why continue
The had people leave. The rest of your statement is made up unless you have a source for it.It's certainly not speculation that The Initiative has lost a lot of people and is trying to rebuild its staff. I know you don't have a big developer step in to help you develop your game unless you severely lack the ability to do the heavy lifting yourself.
Man, I cant even imagine living a life where the developers literally hold a gun to your head and hold your family hostage and force you to play these games you dont wanna play. Such an intense and unfortunate set of circumstances.Tired of these old ass franchises. Do something fresh and new, like another Deus Ex.
Back to basics please
